"Bicycles" Cycling Tip by micas_pt

Cycling, Amsterdam: 31 reviews and 74 photos


Favorite thing: One of my fondest memories from Amsterdam are the bicycles. There were bicycles all around me! One of the first sights I had when leaving beautiful Centraal Station were countless bicycles parked there. And as I walked through the city I could see so many more bicycles lined on street. And Dutch cycling everywhere, both young and elderly, with or without children, to and from, doing their shopping, just going everywhere by bicycle!! This is something that amazes me as i live in a city that is built on seven hills, ? so doing my daily life with a bicycle is something i am not used to. And Amsterdam stands from other cities i?ve visited, as i don?t remember having ever seen so many bicycles in short period of time and a limited area of the city.
